Steak Sosaties

My husband has taken up a new hobby! He likes to experiment in the kitchen of late....
I  think a good friend has had quite an influence on him and he fears being left behind!

So this morning he decided to try his hand at steak sosaties....
he used "manly sized" pieces on the sosatie sticks and used a marinade that I use for lamb chops I bake in the oven...

Here goes the recipe~
15ml olive oil
1tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp steak spice
1 kg sirloin/rump steak
1 cup of tomato sauce
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 medium onion cubed ( to thread with the steak)
1tbsp dried Italian herbs

Make sure your coals are very hot and spread out.
Mix together the oil, garlic and meat spice and rub into the meat cubes
Mix together the tomato sauce and Italian herb. Pour this mixture over the steak and leave to marinade for about an hour.
Thread the meat and onion cubes on the sosatie sticks that have been soaked in water.
Braai over the coals until done to your liking.

I served them with potato croquettes and greens and tomatoes from my little herb/ veg garden in my back lane.
This made 4 sosaties ( 1/2 a portion was enough for me!)

Hope you have an excellent week....wherever you might find yourself!
